At the moment, I’m constantly struggling to sit still. For me, this year is all about saving my pennies so I can head on a big, exciting, adventurous trip next year, so thank god it’s already started flying by.
And before I know it, I’ll be waiting at the departures lounge in nervous anticipation - passport in one hand and and a bag full of opportunity in the other. Can’t wait!
“the arts are not a way of making a living. they are a very human way of making life more bearable. practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven’s sake. sing in the shower. dance to the radio. tell stories. write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. do it as well as you possibly can. you will get an enormous reward. you will have created something.”—kurt vonnegut, a man without a country, 2005 (via onlyondemairt)
There’s nothing like the feel of soft, buttery, delicious leather.
My Mulberry ‘Edie’ bag arrived today and it definitely falls into this category. Love the low key gunmetal hardwear, the ultra subtle branding…but most of all the guitar strap long handle adorned with angry little bunnies. It is just the absolute perfect every day bag for me.
Okay, I’ve finally given in. After years of complaining how pointless receiving flowers was, I’ve caved and decided that I need to have a fresh posy in my apartment each week. They’re just so pretty and sweet! I gravitate to anything that looks wild, although I’m hanging out for November when peonies come back into season.
And the best bit? Waking up to the sweet scent of these beautiful living ornaments!
I’m sure you have noticed by now that I love all things Sofia Coppola. I also have a perchant for the ol’ Mulleavy sisters over at Rodarte (my radarte tee is a weekend fave). So what could be better than a combo of the two?
Sofia’s latest muse, lovely little Elle Fanning, with her vast 12 years of life experience has just filmed the label’s new video. So many ‘fashion movies’ about lately…most are a bit meh, but this one definitely peaks my interest.
Need me a hair barrette a tout de suite obviously!
Look, I’m a little bit befuddled that she’s fronting one of the most highly anticipated campaigns for the season at her tender age. Fingers crossed she’s got some sensible, normal peeps around her. Would hate for her to hit her teens and go all Lindsay on us.
In the meantime, Nowness has the exclusive on this film, which will launch tomorrow.
- Images 1 is a still from the movie and image 2 is from the premiere of Somewhere, wearing Rodarte. Both images sourced from The Cut.
“So avoid using the word ‘very’ because it’s lazy. A man is not very tired, he is exhausted. Don’t use very sad, use morose. Language was invented for one reason, boys - to woo women - and, in that endeavor, laziness will not do. It also won’t do in your essays.”—
Gemma Ward is back on the scene. And no, she’s not preparing to strut down the runway again, although she admits over twitter that nothing is out the question. Instead this ethereal beauty is making her theatre debut in the Perth Theatre Company’s production of The Ugly One.
The piece poses the question “is there such a thing as too beautiful?” as a man goes under the knife to undergo a complete physical makeover. Curious. Of course the real surprise to him is the unique set of new problems his good looks impose. Whatever the outcome, it seems that Ward could not be cast in a more apt play.
I’ve always found her to be quietly intruiging, and in a way, hauntingly sad. It must be those wide innocent eyes, but she seemed too three dimensional to be a mere model. After watching her in the Aussie flick The Black Balloon, I was convinced. It’s such an honest performance - simple yet engaging. A really beautiful film and I’m sure that her performances on stage will resonate just as much as her lucky audiences.
So now I’m off to see if I can justify a 5 hour flight for the chance to see her in action. Tempting indeed.
